The University of the West of Scotland (UWS) as a project coordinator hosted the project kick off meeting on the 19th and 20th of October 2017. This was the opportunity for partners to introduce themselves to the partnership. Following coordinator’s presentation of overall project and individual partner’s responsibilities the discussion focused on the format and the content of the individual outputs as well as developing the timetable of the activities related to the various Intellectual Outputs.
About the project
The aim of the current project is to design, develop and evaluate an innovative game-based approach that will support young people in exploring national and European identity and values and the impact that these have on tackling the problems and making the decisions that are important to young Europeans in a way that they can understand and relate to.
The game has an educational dimension in providing opportunities for young Europeans to extend and test their knowledge of Europe and European customs, values and traditions in a fun and engaging way but also to solve challenging problems surrounding issues which are rooted in notions of identity. The game also has a social dimension that requires players to collaborate in tackling the problem solving and decision making scenarios in order to successfully complete these.
